Pirelli tire testing for the 2024 season continues in Barcelona, Spain. Mick Schumacher got behind the wheel of a Mercedes today.
For the team’s reserve driver, this is the first opportunity to evaluate the actual W14 car and compare it to the virtual version, which Mick has driven hundreds of laps in the simulator. The last time Schumacher drove the current Formula 1 car was at last season’s final round in Abu Dhabi.
The day before ended in Barcelona the first day of testing, which was attended by George Russell and Charles Leclerc. For the first time in a long time, the Pirelli press office provided information on the distance covered and the best time. The greatest distance was covered by a Ferrari driver – 167 laps with a score of 1:18.197 s. George Russell completed 151 laps with a best time of 1:18.400 s.
On Wednesday, Carlos Sainz will participate in the tests together with Mick Schumacher.
